IMOS - AUV SIRIUS CAMPAIGN: WESTERN AUSTRALIA, APRIL 2011

Rottnest Island, Jurien Bay and the Abrolhos (Kendrick, Smale): AUV benthic reference sites were established at Rottnest Island, Jurien Bay and the Abrolhos Islands. Large swell at some sites meant that the vehicle was being moved around a lot leading to some patchy holes in the meshes, predominantly at the Rottnest site.  The information available to help plan dive locations became less detailed as the deployments moved further north.  The dives at the Abrolhos were planned using simple nautical charts and featured more sand and coral than kelp. It would be useful to secure multibeam surveys in the region to help plan future dives
